"Be Realistic expect nothing less than a miracle"
I wish I was one of those people who could "pace" my weekends, it seems like I try and cram as much as I can into weekends, they are really just so much fun, and I hate to waste a moment of them. This weekend was an amazing weekend, on Saturday we were up at the crack of dawn...... in fact I am beginning to think that I actually wake the dawn............ picked up Kira and my friend Cherry who is a dress designer and is going to make and design the dress for my bestest friend's soon to be daughter in laws wedding that we put together a month ago...... and we were off to buy the material.......... at a fabric shop aptly called the "Bargain Store", it really has amazing prices, the only downfall is that it is an hour away from my home town.
Two hours later we were all finished, in more ways than one, and, as we don't have a MacDonald's in Heidelberg the town is too small, we went for breakfast at one there........ not sure why people eat this food, it really tastes like tomato sauce on cardboard.............. as far as I am concerned the old edible thing there is the Apple Pie.
Back to Heidelberg we drive, where we had a marathon two hours, taking measurements for the wedding dress and the bridesmaids dress, who is 3 and going to have the identical dress to her mom ...... then the sweet factory to buy some sweets for a childrens home ....... then the corner clothes shop that always has lots of bargins at really good prices ......... and we did find some......
At 1o'clock I had a meeting for the holiday club coming up in December , and off everyone else went to my favourite coffee shop ......... and then we chilled.......... Pamela's daughter, also a Kayla, had a blast, here she was trying on all my Kayla's sun glasses, talk about a face covered in "happy dirt"
And then a fantastic surprise my sister phoned me, and asked if they could come for lunch on Sunday, it is very hard for them to get away from their farm...... so this was only the second time she has visited. so with my marathon day on Saturday I had not had time to shop..... so guess what I was up at the crack of dawn to get to town to get some shopping like me Linda is an early riser, so they were expecting to be here at about 10am.
I think she knew the state of mind I was in, with all the "drama" that I am going through in the next few weeks.......... my nephew and his girlfriend came along , Kira and Jan ....... and as my sister says...... it was a very "Happy Day". Full of eating and laughing and catching up, it is quite a while since I have been able to get through to her to spend a weekend.
My son in law Jan, a really happy day, but I had to promise Kayla that I would make no arrangements for the next few weeks, as she is going to start writing exams and so needs to study....... so maybe I'll get more chance to blog... here's hoping...........
